Varnish is a content caching platform, which is occasionally called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a web app accelerator tool that can accelerate the speed of a site by up to 1000 percent, based on its content. Whenever a visitor opens any page on a site that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server if the visitor accesses it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will open substantially faster, since Varnish can serve data many times faster than any server software. The result will be a substantially faster loading site, which leads to an immensely improved browsing experience. In case any of the cached webpages is updated on the actual site, the information that Varnish stores in its system memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the users will not see old information.

Varnish in Shared Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with all our shared hosting. You can add it to your account from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared plans and you’ll get a quite simple-to-use interface, which will give you full control over the content caching system. Using 1-click quick-access buttons, you can reboot or cancel any of the instances, i.e. Varnish will no longer work for a specific site. You can also check a comprehensive log file or delete the cache associated with any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your hosting plan, you will be able to select the total amount of memory that will be available to you for data caching purposes and the number of the websites that will use Varnish. You can always get more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for maximum performance, you can assign a dedicated IP address to the sites that will use Varnish. This will allow you to get the most out of your sites and to have a lot of pleased users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Linux semi-dedicated services offered by our company will allow you to use Varnish as soon as your new semi-dedicated server account has been created, since the platform is offered by default. 64 megabytes of system memory will be allocated to Varnish the second your account is activated, so you can take advantage of this load balancing software as soon as your website has been published to the web. In case you’re in need of more memory, you can add 32 MB at a time from the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it will be assigned to your semi-dedicated machine momentarily. You can also increase the number of the sites that use Varnish, or the so-called ‘instances’, which are not directly bound to the amount of memory that you use, which suggests that you’ll have more versatility. The caching platform will enormously reduce the load on the semi-dedicated server that your websites generate, so your visitors can enjoy fast-opening web pages. You will be able to manage Varnish effortlessly through your Control Panel using quick-access controls. You’ll be able to start/deactivate any of the instances that you have, to delete the cache for any of your sites or to check system log files.

Varnish in VPS

Varnish is included by default with each of the VPS offered by our company as long as the server is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you can optimize the performance of your sites with just a few clicks of the mouse. The more powerful the package, the more memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a low-end package, the platform will be able to utilize several hundred megabytes, so even if you manage several different websites, you will notice a serious reduction in the overall server load and a significantly faster site loading speed. The Varnish caching platform will have to work for a while as the users navigate the site and as soon as the content has been cached, you’ll distinguish the results. One of the pluses of using Varnish is that a less powerful and less expensive Virtual Private Server package will accomplish the very same job as a more costly one without the platform, so not only will your sites work considerably better, but you’ll also save some cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Hosting

You can employ Varnish to optimize the speed of any site that is hosted on a dedicated server with our company when the Hepsia Control Panel is installed on the machine. Not only will you get the caching platform ready to be used at no additional charge, but you will also exert full control over it via Hepsia’s easy-to-use interface. It will take only one single click of the mouse to start or delete an instance or to clear the cached files for any site that’s using Varnish and if you’re more competent, you can also view the platform’s system logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 GB of memory for website content caching purposes, so even if you run numerous Internet sites on your dedicated server and they all use the Varnish platform, the difference in their overall performance will be apparent. You will only have to wait for a little while till Varnish caches whatever webpages the visitors browse on their end. The Varnish platform works best if the Internet sites use a dedicated IP address, but owing to the fact that our servers come with three free-of-cost IPs, you’ll have all that you need.
